almost a month ago when the weather was gray and rainy. This time it was sunny and a perfect temperature.
This time around, we hiked from Shut-in Gap to the Newby trailhead, the opposite direction of last time. A couple of us thought it would be more downhill, but we were so wrong. The elevation gain was about 2240 instead of 630! But a good half of that gain was in our side trip to the Twin Falls Overlook, which we didn't do last time. Either way it is a lovely hike.
